The Season to Dazzle @ Berjaya Times Square
This Christmas season, some beauty brands forming the Beauty Zone at 1st Avenue are getting together to offer you a treat with products and services. Each brand will have their consultants at hand to advise and answer questions.
In conjuction with the launch of The Season to Dazzle, I was invited to a Bloggers Workshop at SUB International School of Beauty & Make Up. The outlet is not offers over 20 professional courses but also sells tools and kits from the SUB brand at the front of the shop. I really like the interior of the shop, it looks like New York industrial loft with a metropolitan twist. It has been the rage since last year here in KL. High glass door at the entrance, high stools and long make up table with Hollywood-style mirror with lights made it look as though you're stepping into a different environment.
I suppose talking about the interior is my way of not really getting into the workshop. *laughs* Miyuki, the instructor from BUB International School of Beauty and Make Up conducted a workshop on Special Effects Make Up which I suppose may be intriguing but personally I have no interest in.
Starting with how to create a bruise effect using eye shadow, how to make blood and designing cuts, burn wounds, lacerations, gun shot wounds and a few other wounds. It would come in handy for halloween. Looking as how it's passed this year, there's all next year. Instead of using 'ready made blood' which is expensive Miyuki demonstrated on how to make it using water, red food colouring and tapioca flour. To design wounds, use glue and cotton.
Credit to Tammy of Plus Size Kitten for holding on to my camera and taking these photos for me as everyone in attendance decided to crowd around a small table to 'take a better look' at how things were done despite the fact that the demonstration was clearly visible from one feet away. What were the stools there for again? Go figure.
After that was over we went for a quick break at Starbucks and decided to try on Arisa of Irrevocable Passion bear ears hat. Yes, it went around the table. Adorable! I want one of those!
I was suppose to get a makeover by SUB International School of Beauty and Make Up before getting my photo taken at the Christmas Photo Booth but since I was in hurry to rush off to another event I decided not to. So the girls ie Tammy, Jean, Reiko, Arisa and I had our own photo session without the makeover instead.
